This sorting activity was created by Speech Universe to target categorizations skills both receptively and expressively. There are 10 different category mats and 30 different item cards.
Students place item cards on the correct mat. After the items are placed, you can focus on expressive language skills by having the student state the category the item is in. For example, the student would say "A cow is a farm animal."
This is a great activity for Preschool and Kindergarten age students, as well as students with Autism Spectrum Disorder or Cognitive Impairments who are working on categorization.
